Jesse Winker Joins Reds Against Milwaukee Tonight


The Reds top outfield prospect, Jessee Winker, will join the Reds tonight when they play the Milwaukee Brewers in the second game of a four-game series.

Winker had a good spring training camp, hitting .302 with two home runs and six RBI in 24 games but was optioned to Louisville on March 24. The team elected to start the season with eight relievers and just four bench players.

Barrett Astin was recalled on Thursday and pitched two scoreless innings against the Brewers.  He was optioned to Louisville.

Winker is hitting .323 with five RBI in eight games at Louisville to start the season.

Winker was the Reds compensation round in 2012.
